I am sure that Gene Autry's wealth came more from his successful film career and the fact that he invested his money into the right places.

He did also make other recording apart from "Rudolf" starting out as a Jimmy Rogers imitator as did Ernest Tubb.

It might be worth mentioning that the Carters fared better than many other people recording at that time thanks to Ralph Peer.
